Research Statement

I use quantitative methods to conduct research on the political behavior of Latinos in the US. My research seeks to uncover what role identity plays in Latino political behavior. I am currently analyzing the role of religion in Latino voting behavior, specifically I am seeking to understand the differences between Catholic Latinos and Evangelical Latinos as it pertains to voting behavior at the presidential level. Outside of academic research, I have worked on the 2020 USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times Presidential Poll, and I served on the Committee to Re-envision the USC Public Safety Department in the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd.
